Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
There's a house, on the corner
On the corner of the street
Put a light in the window
And my pretty little girl you'll make my life complete

Four ladies chain chain the ladies over
Turn 'em and chain 'em back now
Turn your girl and promenade her home
Tonight is the night, put a light in the window
Tonight's the night I'm gonna make you mine


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round there
Walk into the middle, square thru and get to four
Four hands around, then circle with the sides now
Make your line, go forward up and back (straight across)
Square thru, but on your third hand, go right & left thru now
Two ladies chain, then promenade
Tonight is the night, put a light in the window
Tonight's the night the light is gonna shine


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain, across the ring now
You rollaway, you circle to the left there
Left allemande the corner and weave the line
Tonight is the night, put a light in the window
Dosado and promenade her home
Tonight is the night, put a light in the window
Tonight's the night I'm gonna make you mine

Put A Light In The Window
 
 

There's a house, on the corner
On the corner of the street
In the house you're the pretty
The pretty little gal
Who'll make my life complete

CHORUS:
Tonight, tonight put a light in the window
To prove that you love me let it shi-i-ine
Tonight, tonight put a light in the window
Tonight's the night I'm gonna make you mine

Gonna go tell your mother
Baby brother, father too
Let them know there's no other
No there's not another one
Who'll love you like I do

CHORUS

Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum ditty dum dum dum
You pretty little gal you're more than I deserve
Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum ditty dum dum dum
Gonna climb the stairs, gonna ring that bell
Before I lose my nerve

Got a ring for your finger, third finger of your hand
Put a light in the window
Cause tonight you're gonna get a golden wedding band

CHORUS

Oh tonight's the night I'm gonna make you mine
Put a light in the window
And my pretty little gal you'll make my life complete

Lyrics by Rhoda Roberts and Kenny Jacobson.
Recorded by The Four Lads.
